Stay away from McMinnville
Administration (Former Employee), McMinnville, ORJune 4, 2014
Pros: not much
Cons: poor management, toxic culture
Quite simply the worst work experience I have ever had. Agree with previous reviewer regarding complete lack of ethics and integrity at this site. Supervisor was a command and control hypocrite who nurtured a culture of fear. There is no apparent interest in effective communication, cost control, or excellence. The offsite leadership lends itself to – more... an environment with little oversight and accountability. Stay away from this place! – less

assembler (Current Employee), Milwaukie, Oregon 97222April 1, 2014
Pros: bonus every quarter
Cons: heath benefits fair
While doing my job I was being subjected to stray chemical vapors from other production lines and sensing a loss of breathing and headaches and nausea. No hoods for ventilation , respirators, or a way to contain the bad fumes for the workers. Long hours and poor scheduling by managers to get the product out.

Great place to work if you don't mind the ample restrictions set due to regulations interpretation or mis interpretation.

Bad work environment
Machinist-Grinder (Former Employee), Saginaw, MIMay 9, 2013
Pros: insurance is pretty good.
Cons: bad work environment.
I worked at Meggitt for about 6 years and this is not a good place to work. The management work force is worse that I have ever seen in the 30 years I have been employed. They can not schedule jobs correctly to insure on time delivery and they pressure the hourly workers to work beyond their means to compensate for their poor judgement. This is a union – more... shop (UAW) and there is constant friction between the union and management which causes for a very stressful work environment. The company does not want to provide the proper tools to the hourly workers so as they can complete their jobs in a timely manner. The major of the machinery is so old and constantly breaking down, leaking oil all over, and they do not repeat on holding the tolerances required which results in defective parts and lots of scrap. It just makes you not want to go to work every day. Life is too short to have to go into work in a very unpleasant and stressful environment.. – less

Bad reputation in McMinnville
Many Areas from molder to mid-level manager (Former Employee), Mcminnville, ORApril 13, 2013
Pros: pay was ok
Cons: poorly managed sweatshop
Employees are not respected by management. Pay is ok but stress and bad politics are not worth it. There is an odd culture because of the mixture of UK and American philosophies. Questionable ethics and integrity of mid & upper managers. Environment is unhealthy with poor ventilation many different chemical. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.

Second home for 38 years
Senior Maintenance Group Leader (Current Employee), Londonderry, NHMarch 29, 2013
Cons: it will no longer be here.
It has been an excellent place to work for the past 38 years. From the management to the individuals that I have worked beside over the years, I could not have found better. However in today's changing times, difficult and sometimes incomprehensible decisions are made. This is one of those decisions, and a company founded by Thomas Edison, and relocated – more... from Orange, NJ to Manchester, NH in 1965, comes to an end, June 2013. – less

Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee), Hatfield, PAFebruary 17, 2013
This is a fast paced,productive environment.
One had to be good with time management and multitasking. The position required flexibility and accountability for the various objectives and goals that were your responsibility. I enjoyed the group dynamics when working with the team to find solutions to our problems. Management was always driving home the – more... need to function within company guidelines. – less

Do "NOT" believe a former employee prepared this review; it was without a doubt the so-called "Human REsources dept." which are not an independent source of information!

Meggitt Aircraft Braking, Akron Ohio
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee), Akron,OhioJanuary 2, 2013
Pros: paid overtime in engineering
Cons: horrid company culture and grotesquely mismanaged.
Meggitt as a whole is a good company. The facility in Akron is just a horrendous place to work. It is horribly mismanaged at the mid-level. They are set in there way, unwilling to change and adapt and force inefficient processes to be followed. They also love to promise customers unrealistic deadlines. Its always crunch time and things are always hitting – more... the fan. Most employees have learned this and adapted with an attitude of apathy. There is no advancement internally, they prefer to hire from outside. In Akron, Ohio expected to be hired into a dead end job. A major overhaul is needed to bring this location to its full potential.

Company culture is non-existent. You come, work and leave. There are no company events or picnics. They do nothing for their employees other then provide them pay. In engineering, overtime is expected almost required (paid though). Also in engineering there is very little creativity or intellectual stimulation.

I've seen other Meggitt business units and they are good, but Akron is not. – less

Great if you like overtime.
Quality Tech (Former Employee), Milwaukie, OregonDecember 10, 2012
Pros: will pay for schooling.
Cons: no time to take advantage of schooling, too busy working.
No job security. Can be fired at the drop of a hat. Push very hard to work all the overtime they can get. This is needed due to poor planning on their part to get product in the door on time. They can't keep good vendors due to lack of paying them on time. People working there is great. They all seem to maintain a positive attitude in spite of management.
